Flower Fairy

Had these flower fairy images for ages ... they came free in a magazine so I just cut them all up and put them to one side. Forgot all about them and found them the other day when I was sorting through some more of my stash!!!

Wasn't going to put the little flowers in the corners of the pic but I'd dropped a blob of glue in the left hand corner of it and made a right mess so had to think of a way to disguise it. So punched some flowers out, added a few pearls and I think it actually looks like they were meant to be there!!! Janice won't know anyway .... unless she reads my blog!!!

Jak's Wedding Rose

When Jak first posted her card made with this rose and then so kindly shared it with us, I knew I wanted to use it on the next wedding card I made. Well, lucky me .... got a wedding coming up on 12th September and as it's a second marriage and going to be very low key I thought this would be perfect.
Printed the big rose onto vellum (very similar to previous wedding card I made) and then decoupaged the rose .. but as usual you can't tell on the photo!!!

Thanks again Jak, and if you want to see the card she made and download a copy of the image, click here.

Artepico Award

I have just received this award from Chris ... thank you so much. I think it's lovely when fellow bloggers think your blog is worthy of an award.

I have to pass this on to five other bloggers who I think deserve this award. Here's my choice:

Thanks again Chris .. much appreciated.

My New Craft Room .. at last!!

Well we finally got there. Trev worked like a trojan on his week off from work (bless him) so now he's gone back to work for a rest and I've got this week off work to play in my new room!!
And before everyone says it's far too tidy ... I've not finished sorting all my stuff out yet .. and you should see what's behind the sliding mirrored doors!!! On second thoughts .. no you shouldn't see what's behind the mirrored doors ... best thing we ever did fitting those .. they hide a multitude of sins (and mess!!)
So there you have it ... hope you enjoy your look round ... I know I'm gonna enjoy playing in here!!

Remember When - La Pashe

New Christmas Range

Well here they are - the new range of decoupage sheets from La Pashe. Aren't they fantastic. Don't think I'm going to be sending these out this Christmas though .... I'm keeping them all for myself and putting them on the mantlepiece .. and then I can bring them out again and again year after year ....

Pop over to Jak, Bev and Toni's blogs for more inspiration.

Right just off to catch the rest of Jak on Create and Craft Sky Channel 671

Just a little something ...
to whet your appetite!!!

Remember When - La Pashe

A couple of tasters for you from the brand new Remember When - La Pashe series. If you visit my blog on 25th August you'll be able to see what I've done with these fabulous new sheets. Didn't think it would be possible for Jak to come up with something that would outshine the others series ... but I was wrong ... these sheets are to die for and I thoroughly enjoyed making them up. Pop over to Jak, Toni and Bev's blogs for more sneak previews.

If you would like to see Jak in action and other ideas on how to make up these fantastic sheets .. tune in to Create and Craft Sky Channel 671 on Monday, 25th August at 5pm. Don't be late!!

The same .... but different!!!

I've made a card similar to this before ... but tweaked this one a bit!! Different colour, printed sentiment directly onto the card, used foam pads to raise the circle off the card (stuck down flat last time) and finally put a wavy bit at the bottom for a finishing touch.
Thanks again Tracey for the fantastic "Fred's Flowers". Don't think
I'll ever get fed up of using these!!!

Just a quick update on the status of my craft room ... nearly there.
Just needs a few finishing touches and then I'll post the pics on here.
Bet you can't wait can you!!!

Vellum Wedding Card

Printed the background and text straight onto the vellum and
then fastened it to the base card with a blob of glue at each
corner and then covered the glue blobs with the pearls.

I'm really pleased with this one and it looks so much
nicer in the flesh.

Another card AND another award!!

Bit of a kickstand card going on here!!! I'm quite pleased with the result ... thought it would topple over with the weight of the front of the card but just reinforced the back with some of the green card and it stands up a treat.

Once again Jak's come up trumps with these sheets and I can't wait to see what she's got in store for us next time. For those who don't know how to get them, they're here: La Pashe

Been having a major clean out in my craft room as Trev is off work all next week and says he MIGHT revamp it while he's off and I'm at work. When it's done I'll post some before and after pics on here.

Before I sign out can I just say thanks to Liz who
very kindly gave me this award. Much appreciated Liz and I'd like to nominate EVERYONE.

Bye for now
